This year’s World Pinhole Photography Day is dated April 29th, and to celebrate this wonderful annual analogue event, we decided to step it up a little and challenge you to take portraits via pinhole photography. So prepare your tripods, sticky tacks, elastics, and adhesives because your camera ain’t supposed to move. The adhesives apply to you and/or your subject as well, as you should stay put if you want to have a clear, crisp result. Alright! With that said, here’s how to join.


  • Camera/Film type: Pinhole camera with any compatible film can be used.
  • Upload limit: 3 photos.
  • Analogue photo must not be digitally enhanced or manipulated.
  • Minimum Photo Dimensions: Submissions must be at least 768px.
  • Meta data must be completed (camera, film, location, & 3 tags).
  • Deadline of submission is on May 20, 2012.
  • 5 Winners of 5 Piggies will be selected

Good luck and have fun shooting! Happy World Pinhole Photography Day everyone!

    @kleeblatt that's an awesome photo!
    @nyebe Does a tin can with a hole count as a camera? Does darkroom paper qualify as "Film"?

    Hehe, have a look over here: This guy really goes into pinhole pictures. He even has a cardboard DIY pinpoint camera as well as one made from an egg! By the way, the cardboard camera is a great idea as this allows people who can not afford a camera to still make pictures. :)
